I agree with Mark that there is no single language that would be the best fit for this. In one part you say that you the website and some features available for hand held devices and then later say to use C# to make the handheld apps. You can made a website that will detect that it is a mobile device that it is being shown on and use different templates to access the data in a way that is optimized for mobile. I know quite a few websites that do that. Now if you want to do some mobile apps, that would be fine as well, but you would probably not be using C# on all of them. You could if you used MonoTouch for .NET on iPhone and MonoDroid on Android and Silverlight on WP7. But then it is still 3 separate apps. Configuring a website to show differently for a mobile device might be easier.

Even using something like html5 is not going to help you for everything, because the standard is not set, so every browser has different interpretations of it, and WP7 does not have it at all yet. I am not sure if Blackberry does or not.

For me, I always say to develop a website with what you are comfortable with (or want to learn), and that could be ASP.NET, RoR, html5, php, etc. You will have to test alot of mobile devices no matter what you pick, so be prepared for that.
